If you plan to fly soon, you may want to learn some tips for healthy flying.

It never seems to fail, I board the plane healthy and cold free, but by the time I land or shortly after arriving, I become sick with a cold.

Does this happen to you too?

Fortunately, we donโ€™t have to be bothered with these post-flight yuckies any longer.

Check out my 8 tips for healthy flying, they are a must.

1. Hand Sanitizer

The unfortunate truth is that airplanes and airports are packed with people in close quarters.

This means germs are able to quickly spread.

Bring a small bottle of hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes.

Use them to clean your hands frequently.

Also use them to wipe down your arm rest, serving table, and anything else you will touch on the plane.

2. What to Eat and Drink

Donโ€™t let your travel blow your plans to eat healthy.

Turn down the in-flight snack, which is often gross processed foods high in sodium and calories, and opt to bring a protein bar, fruit salad, or other health conscious snack with you.

You can also bring your own bottled water to drink.

Add some drink mixes packed with vitamin C to help keep your immune system strong.

3. Bring Your Own Travel Pillow

Not only are in flight pillows uncomfortable, they are also pretty dirty and full of germs.

Bring your own small travel pillow if you plan to rest during the flight.

It will give you better neck support and keep you free from other peopleโ€™s sick germs.

4. What to Wear

Donโ€™t worry, flying isnโ€™t a fashion show, although many of us ladies want to look stellar at all times.

Plan your travel outfit for comfort and circulation.

Iโ€™ve learned that you never can predict what the temperature will be in cabin.

You will want to dress in layers.

Layer on a long sleeve button down shirt over a lightweight tee or tank.2

Bring a jacket if the weather is cold outside.

Be sure to wear comfy shoes with nonrestrictive socks as well, to help prevent poor circulation.2
